Fried Plantains


Fried Plantains
Introduction: Plantains are delicious and very easy to cook. Plantains are a member of the banana family. They are a starchy, low in sugar variety that is cooked before serving as it is unsuitable raw. It is used in many savory dishes somewhat like a potato would be used and is very popular in Western Africa and the Caribbean countries. They are usually fried or baked. I just love plantains!
